Mind/body medicine continues to demonstrate that stress has a negative effect on our health, while the qualities of God, especially joy and calmness, create health and longevity.

You will experience many benefits of this retreat, as you:

  • Learn how body, mind, and soul work together for our health
  • Learn healing techniques that access your inner strength and power
  • Experience  calmness, balance, and infinite energy using  Yogananda’s meditation, energization,  and affirmation tools

In this retreat you will practice Yogananda’s healing techniques for mental, spiritual, and physical wellness. You will enjoy exercises and practices that help relax and attune the body, mind, and spirit to your own divine healing power and inexhaustible joy.

Meditation during the Healthy Mind Healthy Body Program

In this transformative program, led by Nayaswami Mukti, you will learn to strengthen your will and determination in everything, and experience your body internally vibrating with vitality and joy.

“He who finds joy within himself discovers that his body is charged with electric current—life energy, not from food, but from God.”  —Paramhansa Yogananda
